I want to get an HID kit for my truck but I have no idea where to buy. Are they all about the same quality? Ebay has them for cheap but I dont want some cheap POS kit. I was looking at www.hidxenonheadlights.com and they seem pretty legit. I think Im going to go with 8000k maybe 10,000k Im not sure yet. I want a blueish color so which would be better? Anyways any links or suggestions would be cool,thanks.

and where it says coupon code type in TN you should get 25 dollars off. I bought my hidkit from there and never had a problem with them. I would go with 6000k thats what i have and i like them its like white/blueish color. The higher the Ks you go the less light you get. 35w is fine also you might want to buy a Hid relay harness off ebay, so the hid kit draws power from the battery instead of your stock wiring harness. If you don't want to spend that much money you could also go with http://www.ddmtuning.com/product.php?II=101

I have bought more kits then i can count on my fingers from ddm. Very good for the price. The 35 watts are fine for low beams. If you have the 55's for your lows you will get flashed all the time. I must say though, hids really spruce up fog lights.

ive got a ddm 3k for my fogs.. no issues

did a complete retrofit with oem parts for my headlights though

if you do not have projectors i would not recommend hids.. if you do don't go higher than 55w.. and use a harness and relay unless you would light your oem wiring to melt

I found this company a few days ago and they seem like very nice kits. You get what you pay for.

I have had 2 sets of the 55 watt ddm kit in my Subaru for over a year and i haven't even blown a bulb. I believe there ballast's are life time guarantee to. Also my Subaru has no projectors and its bright as hell i used 3k for my fogs and 4.3k for my High/low.

5000k i got 6000k. the higher the Ks the less light output you will get. Some people confuse it for the opposite. lol like they got 10000k the brighter it is, which is wrong.
